Not sure if this is the right forum, so apologies if I've got it wrong.

Here goes, I have a cable modem with a dynamic IP, what I want to do is point my domain at my IP so that I can host my own web, ftp and mail servers.

Is there a complete idiots guide out there to allow me to do this.

I'm currently running XP Pro with IIS 5 installed but don't really know how to use it.

Any help appreciated,

Bob

First off, make sure your ISP allows this! Very important.

Then go to, for example, www.dyndns.org and check under "Custom DNS". It costs $30 to set up and is free after that. It works well with dynamic IP also.

Then you just set up the servers at home.

Good luck! :)

I would recommend no-ip.com its totally free and in my experience works a lot better than dyndns. When I had dyndns it kept going down...

But they give you your own domain under the free package, thats what I was talking about.

I host my own email server + plus webserver and use dyndns.org, its a one off payment, you can have multiple hosts, and of course one MX record.

My IP is semi-static and is renewed once a month so i use an excellent free app to update my IP to dydndns.org when it changes and Im not home.

Its called - dyndns updater -

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
